[Linux-cluster] DLM patch: owner pid, lock ordering and new expedite flag



The attached patch contains the following changes:

1) Track process which owns locks
   Support is added for tracking the pid of the
   process which owns a lock. This is returned from
   a query operation and used in debug_log() messages.

2) Change rules for granting new locks
   When the LSFL_NOCONVGRANT flag is specified for
   a lockspace the rules for granting a new lock are:
   1) There must be no locks on the conversion queue
   2) There must be no other locks on the grant queue

3) Change rules for granting locks when a lock is
released or converted to a lower mode
   When the LSFL_NOCONVGRANT flag is specified for
   a lockspace the rules for granting pending locks
   when a lock is released/converted down are:
   1) Only the lock at the head of a queue and any
      compatible locks which immediately follow it are
      eligible to be granted.
   2) The waiting queue is only processed if the
      conversion queue is empty

4) Added LKF_GRNLEXPEDITE
   The current LKF_EXPEDITE flag means that if the lock
   has to be queued, it is queued at the head of the
   queue. LKF_GRNLEXPEDITE has meaning when LSFL_NOCONVGRANT
   is specified. It is only valid on a grant request for
   a NL lock and it means that the lock is granted regardless
   of whether there are any locks waiting on a queue.
